Kenyan ‘Moral Policeman’ Ezekiel Mutua Reacts as CNN Gay Anchor AndersonCooper Welcomes Son Via Surrogate
Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Dr. Ezekiel Mutua has reacted after gay CNN anchor Anderson Cooper announced the birth of his son.
Anderson, who broke the news during his AC 360 show on Thursday, April 30th, said the boy was born through a surrogate.
Mutua, through Twitter on Friday, May 1st, described Anderson’s use of surrogate to get a child as “warped logic.”
CNN's @AndersonCooper is a dad.
"On Monday I became a father. I've never said that out loud and it astonishes me," he said Thursday at the end of the #CNNTownHall.

“CNN’s Anderson Cooper and his husband yesterday broke the news of their first born son Wyatt Morgan Cooper,” tweeted Mutua.
He added: “But they had to get a normal woman to get pregnant using his normal seed and carry the child in a normal womb and give birth in a normal way….see the warped logic?”
Mutua, nicknamed Kenya’s moral policeman, has been at the forefront in the war against homosexuality in Kenya.
Since his appointment as the head of KFCB, Mutua has banned a number of local and international films over allegations of promoting same-sex relationships.
This week, the high court upheld Mutua’s decision to ban Kenyan lesbian-themed romance movie ‘Rafiki’ on grounds that it advocates for homosexuality.
Gay sex is a criminal offense in Kenya and is punishable by 14 years in jail.
